15 Easy Ways to Make Suits Part of Your WFH Wardrobe
A good suit is a terrible thing to waste.
Sometime last winter, before the world began to change in ways we’re all still wrapping our heads around, I got to see samples of M.M.’s new OrigamiTech suits, and I was immediately blown away. The machine-washable, wrinkle-resistant fabric was made for seizing the moment. The cut of the wide-legged Wesley loungers was modern, but long-flight friendly. The Colby jogger, a slimmer, ankle-length suit pant, was begging to show off a stunning pair of shoes. And the Moreland jacket, a perfectly tailored piece of workwear, looked like it could give its own Ted Talk. Before I could even try these pieces on, I was fantasizing about the places I would wear them—all the big meetings, important events, and life-changing days when this gorgeous suit would be my superhero costume.
Flash forward to now, and well…need I say more? But I can’t seem to shake my adoration for the OrigamiTech pieces, and even if I don’t have any cross-country business trips to take them on, I still find myself reaching for the pants and jacket when I need an extra boost (which is often, these days). But I rarely wear them together. Instead, I tend to mix and match the pants and the jacket with more casual pieces, deconstructing the suit in a way that works for my current reality of working from home.
Here are the 13 pieces I grab when styling my take on the deconstructed suit.
The Sophie Sweater
I’ve said it before, but after this year, every woman deserves a cashmere sweater. This one goes with black, olive, or cool charcoal, so I could wear it three days a week if I wanted to. (I do.)
